The Midnight Gang cast and details of David Walliams' BBC One show

The Midnight Gang cast

The Midnight Gang makes its TV premiere on BBC One tonight - here's who's on the cast and all you need to know.

The Midnight Gang tells an extraordinarily heartwarming and, of course, funny story of five children on a hospital ward – and on a quest for adventure!

It is a story of friendship and magic – and of making dreams come true. Readers are set to be utterly spellbound by this heartfelt story that will bring magic to everyone.

When the clock strikes midnight most children are fast asleep - but for the Midnight Gang the journey is just beginning.

Based on the original book by David Walliams, The Midnight Gang tells the tale of a young boy called Tom who finds himself in the Children’s Ward at St Hugo's Hospital after being hit on the head by a cricket ball.

At the hospital he meets a scary porter, the kid-hating matron and newly qualified, and slightly nervous Dr Luppers.

Once Tom is moved to the children’s ward, he discovers The Midnight Gang, a secret gang of children who go on midnight adventures in the hospital making dreams come true.

When Tom’s wicked headmaster turns up at the hospital to take him back to his boarding school, Tom must find a way to stay in the hospital to fulfil one final adventure for The Midnight Gang.
